A proverb in African tradition is a storehouse of wisdom and philosophy which is fraught with wit, rhetoric, humor and poetic values. In many cases, failure to grasp an African proverb is considered to be a failure grasp the subtleties, the nuances and the didactic finesse of African wisdom.

This “wisdom of the elders” expresses truth that over the years has been used to illustrate ideas, reinforce arguments and deliver messages of inspiration, consolation, celebration and advice.

Tia Monteiro ,

Great App!!

This is a wonderful app!! I highly recommend. Not only does it give proverbs it gives 2min reads on its meaning though there is of course ways to dive deeper if you so choose.
Meet the life time membership. Only $13. It’s well worth it and will help the developers of this app.

The modern design and UX is also a big plus. As a fellow graphic designer I really appreciate it.
